benjamin netanyahu. host: said arikat, this is a related twitter message on where we are after 10 years of war in iraq and afghanistan -- host: let me add, either way, what is the effect on the middle east specifically? guest: i spent five years in iraq as the u.n. spokesman, i got to know it intimately. let me tell you that iraq is a pretty much destroyed country. the constructed in many ways. physically and otherwise. there is no reconciliation. after 10 years of war in iraq we find that the country is more divided than ever. as we have seen from john kerry's visit today, the tensions between the united states and this government, not very cordial. imbued with a lot of tension. a lot coming back from the community of nations they have not really a implemented. i would say that it is all because of a constitution that failed the entire public at large. basically taking segments of society and addressing themselves to them. host: this unannounced trip that you just indicated in iraq, these officials with the president on his trip, the associated press pointed out that there were a serie
. of course, objective of against iran syria benjamin netanyahu and the ceo of ge be international. a fox use digital politics editor. gentlemen, thank you for being with us. if i may, i want to start with you. benjamin netanyahu could not have been too pleased with whoever else happened. president obama was speaking rather aggressively to the people of israel over the head of benjamin netanyahu. >> well, a lot of these visits are public diplomacy. i will say that based upon what the president haa said over the past few days there is a hopeful be in this cynical me. i hope that the president has been seen as of late both the nsa intelligence reports as follows until it -- israeli intelligence reports and has come to the conclusion that they are a serious threat. if you read between the lines the sounds as if he is given the green light to attack whenever they deem necessary. that is the hopeful. the cynical, says something else based upon the past four years of the attitude that the president has taken toward israel and mr. netanyahu in particular, he is killing mr. netanyahu with kindness, w
obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear course, and it is our fervent hope that diplomatic and economic measures will do so. in the final analysis, of course, no option should be excluded. we recognize israel's right to defend itself, and that it is right for america to stand with you. >> benjamin netanyahu did everything he could to pretend that the romney position on iran was somehow tougher than the obama position on iran. the romney speech was pure pandering from start to finish, which means that it, of course, did not include the words "palestine" or "pal
is that? given all of the publicity around the more tenuous relationship between benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister, and this president. it seems to me that they each were echoing, you know, tremendous friendship and warmth between them. >> well, i think you have to look at a visit like this as having two parts. one part focuses on what are the very hard, practical issues and realities that have to be confronted? and having in a sense more understanding about how you're going to proceed to deal with those issues. whether it's iran, whether it's syria, which is going to be, i think, a more immediate challenge than people had thought. whether it's the arab awakening, whether it's the palestinians. on one level, there is this very hard headed practical approach where you try to come to understandings. at another level, there's the whole question of what's the emotional connection? what is the kind of psychological bond or links that exist. because when you make decisions, obviously they take place in a context. i think what you're seeing right now, both in what the two men said but

: president barack obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu have focused on israel. shortly after arriving president barack obama toured a missile which was largely funned by the u.s. it is credited with intercepting more than 400 rockets. now they are shifting to the nuclear program and president barack obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu are disagreeing on how close iran is to making a nuclear bomb. but the president's quick speech sent a message to iran about the relationship between israel and u.s. >> we have for the past 65 years united states is proud to stand with you assets greatest ally and its friend. >> reporter: they do not expect agreements to come out of his trip but we will talk more about what is at stake on this trip when i see you next, kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> time now 4:14, a teen in ohio has been sentenced to life in prison for a school shooting rampage that caused three deaths. tj lane appeared in court and when he came to court he wore a t-shirt which said killer and he smirked at the teens' parents who were killed as they read their em
with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu yesterday. there much of the focus was on iran's nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world and potentially a threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >>> today we'll hear more about the stalled middle east peace process and what can be done to jump-start negotiations. peter alexander joins us live from jerusalem. good morning to you, peter. while we were asleep in the u.s., some interesting developments out of gaza last night. >> reporter: yeah. that's exactly right. this sort of emphasized the importance of reaching a peace deal between the palestinians and israelis. two rockets were fired by hamas militants in gaza that landed in the southern israel city of sderot. this is a city that president visited on the last trip to the region in 2008. nobody was hurt there. but again, it sort of brings new attention to the volatility in this region. just yesterday the president toured the
and prime minister benjamin netanyahu have yet to reach a clear consensus on where the red line is. and if they can better under where iran stands in the process of developing nuclear weapons that will be a step forward. that being said this is probably more a similar pwoeublg than a substantive trip. any time a president goes to is raoerblgs regardless of the economy conditions in this country i think that's a good thing for america. martha: it seals like at this point that the discussion about iran and where the red line is is much more front and center than a meaningful peace process discussion at this point. it feels that is sort of on the back bryne. this clearly becomes the focus of these conversations. myra, if you're at the white house, you would say, look, this is what it takes. we're going to sit down, have discussions, spend to time face-to-face. they have had a complicated relationship, this president and benjamin netanyahu by all accounts. isn't this a good first step in the right direction. >> i think it could be a good first step. one of the major complaints from rep
areas across the country. behind the scenes the conversations with simon perez and benjamin netanyahu the president and prime minister of this country of course will focus on the peace process and perhaps most significantly on the situation with iran. thomas? >> peter, thank you. here with us the former u.s. ambassador to morocco and also former white house middle east adviser and current president of arab tv. >> shalom, thomas. >> mark, good to have you here and especially as we talk about the president's trip. "the washington post" has outlined what this trip means from president obama to israel and it is a pretty daunting list. it is to reaffirm the u.s. commitment to israel, security talks about iran's nuclear weapons program, also israel's red line. discuss the movement of arms into the syrian rebel territory on the lebanon border. are the president and benjamin netanyahu likely to find common ground? as peter points out in such a short period of time? this is just a quick trip. >> there is no doubt, thomas, that they've had a very difficult personal relationship with each other.
, benjamin netanyahu, who just sweeped by in an election, recently, without a coalition. so there could be some tension there and clearly some messages that need to be cleared up, specifically when it comes to, perhaps, iran, and when or where the red line on iranian nuclear enrichment might be drawn. i want to bring in our sara sidner, senior international correspondent, who's live in jerusalem, as we look at some of these pictures. sara, that is a big question. we talked off the top with jessica yellin about the syrian potential for chemical weapons, and to iran now, this deadline that had been imposed, i believe it was spring. i believe it may have been now pushed to summer or fall. what exactly is this deadline? how much pressure is the president going to be hearing about this deadline when it comes to iran? where does it stand? >> reporter: well, let's talk about what you just heard there. because you just heard two pretty different statements. yes, they said, we're friends. yes, they said that israel and the united states are going to be working together, closely, biggest allies,
-terrorism unit and he served as the chief of staff for benjamin netanyahu from 2006-2008. but now he's a global phenomenon. gracing front pages around the world, the "jerusalem post" called him the man of the moment. the new yorker ran a very lengthy profile. in the uk the headline read, naftali bennett, set to be the powerbroker. he pushes netanyahu rightward. we asked if he was worried about the relationship between israel and the united states of america. >> well, erin, i think it's okay for friends to disagree on some things. i'll tell you what i saw was a great relationship between our two countries, the bonds between america and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it l
while between him and benjamin netanyahu. >> and just as we have for these past 65 years, the united states is proudo stand with you as your strongest ally and your greatest friend. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. >> sounded so perfect. but then -- later in the day things changed. >> iran is a grave threat to israel, a grave threat to the world, a nuclear iran. the united states is committed to dealing with it. >> each country has to make its own decisions when it comes to the awesome decision to engage in any kind of military action. and israel is differently situated than the united states. >> it's interesting to watch each of their faces during that particular exchange. not just the one talking but the one not happy with what the other one was saying. so where exactly does this relationship stand right after that i spoke with israel's minister of the economy and a member of the security cabinet there. now our viewers, you watch the show all the time, he's been on
benjamin netanyahu it will happen in jerusalem. the president is on his first trip to israel as commander in chief. he arrived there this morning, 6:12 eastern time, just after noon in tel aviv. i want to turn things over to wolf blitzer in washington to get us to that news conference. it should begin at any moment, wolf. >> it is a very important news conference, don. they'll be taking questions from reporters, but opening up with formal statements. let's go to jerusalem right now. jessica yellin is standing by. john king is standing by. john, first to you, give us a little sense of what has happened so far in the hours since the president arrived. >> wolf in the hours since he's arrived we have seen the optics that both governments want. that's a friendly, happy, upbeat reception. people talking washington, people talk here in jerusalem, across israel, about the frosty personal relationship between president obama, and president netanyahu. you would have no hint of that from watching the last few hours unfurl. air force one landed in tel aviv. a big celebration, even a joke from the pri
. as soon as he stepped off air force one, he was greeted not just by peres but also benjamin netanyahu. don't exactly have a warm relationship, but here he is, the live picture with peres. and you see all the school children waiting american and israeli flags and we are told in a little while, oh, there he is shaking hands, greeting them from pretty excited kids. the kids will be singing a very familiar song tomorrow in english, arabic and hebrew. we expect to hear the president also, as well. he spoke earlier today about the special relationship between the united states and israel. and as they do a photo-op, here's what the president said a little while ago. >> i see this visit as an opportunity. to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations to reinstate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> in an unstable and uncertain middle east, the need for our alliance is greater than ever. it's the key to thwarting dangers to advancing peace. it's the key to achieve a stable and secure peace that the presi
to the establishment of a palestinian state. it is no secret that prime minister benjamin netanyahu and president barack obama have not always seen eye-to-eye on the best road to peace and that's just the beginning for president obama on this historic trip. he has to deal with nuclear threats from iran and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i guess the start is whether or not i have overstated the case. there are some who believe as i intimated a moment ago that the president's very presence in israel that's to say, our president, barack obama, signals to some there might be renewed vigor, renewed possibility for peace between the israel
, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back home in washington, very few people are expecting a breakthrough anytime soon. >> back to the midd
in a tree-planting ceremony. then later today, president obama will meet with benjamin netanyahu. coming up at 7:15, the hot topics on the meets with the israeli leaders. >>> well, now we're less than a week away from the day the u.s. supreme court will hear oral arguments on proposition 8. next tuesday the court will hear arguments before or against prop 8 along with another same-sex marriage case. the challenge to the federal defensive marriage act. yesterday, the court said it would release same-day audio if the arguments are presented. the court's statement did not mention television coverage which legal experts probably means it will not be allowed. >>> a bay area consumer group warning about potential hidden fees with oakland's municipal i.d. card. the city created these i.d. cards in part for undocument emergencied immigrants. a debit function was -- undocumented immigrants. a debit function was put in place. there's hidden fees. there are fees for enrolling and and another fee for every time it's used. >>> b.a.r.t. is dealing with a big bird problem. it's expected to cost the transi

in israel and the first thawing the often frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu. is it a turning point in the region? let's ask dan henninger and global view columnist bret stevens. so, bret, the big news out of this, or at least at the surface, that a new good feeling between prime minister y netanyahu and president obama. real or does it makes a difference? >> real, and it's definitely good in terms of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement with the palestinians. he's clearly, john kerry, the secretaries of state made this a priority or wanted to.
think he is right about this. it is also true that benjamin netanyahu is facing a different situation at home. he does not have the same kind of majority, came closer to losing than people thought he would. obama was reelected despite his attempts to prevent that. so, they both have an interest in getting something done. i think it is highly remote that anything will get done. the neighborhood has only gotten more dangerous. >> colby king? >> i thought it was important that he made the trip. ultimately, if there is going to be peace in the area it will have to come from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no longer number one on president obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornersto

. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says he believes that president obama is determined to keep iran from developing nuclear weapo weapons. he reiterated israel's determination to take military action necessary. the two leaders discussed reports about the use of chemical weapons in syria. crossing of president obama's red line. we have fox team coverage tonight. rosen looks at the iran issue but we begin with ed henry in jerusalem with worries over the deadly action in neighboring syria. hello, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. most significant with the president's strong tone throwing out the possibility of military action. he has issued the warpings before. >> talking tough in the first public comments that chemical weapons have been used in syria, president obama said the regime in damascus will be held accountable. >> when you start seeing weapons that can cause potential devastation and mass casualties, and you let that genie out of the bottle, then you are looking potentially at even more horrific scenes than we have already seen in syria. international community has to act
benjamin netanyahu and the president, how much do you think that gives him that he's able to go into a speech like this with the white house administration working on it that there will be change in a positive way in the future? >> alex, i think it was the president who used some hebrew language throughout the course of his remarks today to make it clear to the people of israel that he understands not just intellectually but emotionally the plight of the jewish people and their connection to this land. that's why tomorrow he's going to punctuate his stop with visiting the grave of father of zionism. the biggest standing ovation, perhaps, came when he said israel is not going anywhere. this is the speech, according to those we visited with over the last several days in israel, the remarks and the statements and the way that he has carried himself with the jewish people and with benjamin netanyahu over the last several days, this is the speech and this is the visit that the israeli people wanted to see early in the president's administration, in his first year as a senior administ
